The cheapest would probably be a used early 02 transmission because they are the weakest of the bunch. You can install practically any Subaru transmission in one form or another, but depending on the model you may have to change some other parts as well.


What are you looking to do with the car? Are you looking for the cheapest replacement? Strongest replacement? Something inbetween? Unique? There are a lot of possible routes..

your best bet is any 02-05 wrx transmission - it'll drop right in, and they shouldn't be too expensive to find.

I would at least go for the late 02-03 model, the teeth on the gears are thicker than early 02. 04-05 would be even better.

^^ I'd agree. Look for the BA body code on the bugeyes... or the AA on the Blobs
